gorillas, and i think she is going to stay in captivity, and even in captivity, you have to socialize them. >> are they going to ease into the animal population, and next thing you know they will go and get a cup of coffee the way they are being raised by humans. >> and texts. we have more on cnn saturday morning, and it starts right now. good morning, i am victor blackwell. >> i am alison kosik. it's 7:00 in the morning. glad you are with us. health officials in oklahoma are offering free hiv and hepatitis tests today to patients of one dentist and oral surgeon. >> they say some of his staffers were unlicensed and he may have given patients expired drugs. cnn national correspondent susan candiotti is in tulsa this
4:01am
morning. susan, how did authorities discover this problem? >> reporter: good question, victor. good morning. they found that a man had been diagnosed with hiv and hepatitis c, and they tried to figure out how he came down with it. they were tracing his movements and found he had been to the dentist office, the office of dr. scott harrington. and that's what prompted investigators to go to the office and they found deplorable conditions including using expired drugs, and improper sterlization of equipment and rusty dental tools that would go inside your mouth. that's when they decided we have to screen all of the former patients, at least 7,000 of them, at least that's the number they know of, and that's as far as the records go back. here is a former patient. >> we are all very concerned
4:02am
and, you know, apprehensive. you know, we just don't know until we actually do get tested, you know, whether or not -- it's just one of those things, you know. but we are all very concerned. >> susan, how are the testing going to work? >> reporter: it's going to take place over my shoulder, and this place is run by the health department and they are running the screenings and they are going to have to come in and give three samples of blood and be tested for hiv and hepatitis b and c, and it will take about two to three weeks before they get the results so you can imagine how difficult that waiting period is going to be for all of these patients. >> we know what is next for the patients but what is next for this dr. harrington? >> reporter: he voluntarily
4:03am
surrendered his license and his office is closed for now, and at the least he will have a hearing and will have to answer to all of the complaints and the district attorney's office is also investigating him for possible criminal charges as well as possibly looking at charges at his dental assistants who were allegedly giving sedation to patients without being licensed. this is far from over. we are not saying there's an outbreak, but they are trying to tap down panic and a lot of people are nervous in the community and that's why they wanted to get the screenings started right away. >> thank you, susan. an e. coli outbreak spread to 15 states. 24 cases have been reported, and eight people have been hospitalized. one case is linked to farm rich brand frozen foods.
4:04am
most of those sickened are younger than 22. let's go to north korea and an escalation of sorts. they are in a state of war with their neighbor to the south. >> and they trained their missiles one of the united states, and one of the targets is austin, texas. and we get now from our cnn correspondent, chris lauren. >> a lot of folks in texas right now are wondering how in the world did we get on the bullseye list of north korea. u.s. officials are not that concerned about austin, but they are keeping a close eye on the north's latest move. look passed the picture of kim jong-un. there's a chart marked u.s. mainland strike plan, with missile trails aiming at hawaii, california, d.c., and for some reason austin, texas. it's wishful thinking on kim
4:05am
jong-un's part, they can't reach the u.s. yet. but they have a more limited strike, something short of an all out attack. >> i think it's more in the sense of north korea getting right up to the edge, stumbling and then falling over the edge. >> former ambassador chris hill says the real danger is the north shelling the border island like it did in 2010, and there's a wildcard here that worries the u.s., young, inexperienced and kim jong-un's desire to prove himself as a leader. >> are there any north koreans that have their doubts to whether he is really up to this. >> the north rhetoric has not been matched by any actual military moves, but it has no foreseeable end game and could go on for a while. north koreans protested on the streets one day after the u.s.
4:06am
flew b2 bombers on a training run, and it could lead to unintended consequences. >> china is viewing this as an alarming escalation, and the second is the north koreans almost received a validation in terms of the their development program. >> and there was intensity bait over whether to send the b2s up to the white house in senior levels of the national security council. the full range of options were considered with some suggesting the u.s. do more than just fly the b2, and others suggesting the u.s. hold back and do less. victor, alison? >> chris lawrence, thanks. the military is investigating the third deadly training exercise since february. a navy s.e.a.l.s was killed
4:07am

4:08am
getting the first cup of coffee. we do have showers and storms up from the upper midwest and down to the gulf coast. not of a tornado threat today more gusty winds and hail, and an isolated tornado is not out of the question. let me walk you where we will see the rains. here is saturday, the computer model right on target, and then as we head through this morning, 1:00, you will see where we will see a benign and broken up. and as the front moves through it won't be a total washout, even for easter, tomorrow. we have sunrise services or easter egg hunts, and this is the afternoon, and we can see st. louis, scattered showers, and tomorrow there's a threat for severe weather in texas, houston to dallas, and here is easter sunday. we will see a few scattered showers and storms on the whole, and it's very unsettled. so in charlotte or atlanta or washington, d.c., it doesn't look like it will be a total washout, but you have to dodge the storms that move through.
4:09am
and then monday morning we're drying out, but we will cool down the temperatures. another arctic blast comes for next week. sunny and a nice day. temperatures about 57 in the northeast. comfortable. there is that severe weather threat. easter forecast, the rain and line of showers and thunderstorms moving through. highs today, finally 70 in atlanta, and finally spring breakers along the gulf coast enjoying warmth. 67 in new york. and warming up, it's a roller coaster, warming up the next couple days and then tuesday and wednesday, chicago, 58 today, and then it gets down into the the 30s and then the cold goes into the northeast. >> so sick of it. >> april is expected to be above average. >> i am counting on it. >> thanks. we have much more coming up this hour. >> here is what is coming up that.
